Ground Level Dryer Vent Reroute
When we initially inspected this dryer vent, there were 3 glaring code violations that were a huge safety hazard to the customer and their home.
First off, as you can see in the photos, it was plastic flex hose (a red hot fire hazard).
Second, it was disconnected due to tons of hazardous lint weighing down the flimsy excuse for a dryer vent and the hot moist air from the dryer exhaust over a long period of time, causing it to fall a part.
Third, it was way too long and routed unevenly to an outside wall much further away than necessary.
Once we took a few measurements and confirmed a code compliant route and quote with our customer, we got to work tearing down the plastic flex hose, cutting new holes and installing the brand new, fully galvanized steel hard pipe much to our customer’s satisfaction.
